wasp nest removal

do i need to remove a wasp nest?

Wasps are common throughout the UK during the Spring and Summer months. They are social insects that commonly form their nests in cavity walls, roof voids, outbuildings and shrubbery. Due to their ability to deliver multiple painful and occasionally fatal stings, wasps are a significant cause of distress to people.

If you discover a wasp’s nest in or around your home, this can be cause for concern, especially if you have small children or somebody with an allergy to wasp stings. Here at Pest Arrest, we strongly advise you do not tackle this yourself unless you have the correct training to do so, and do not attempt to remove it if you’re allergic to stings.

  • Approach the nest at dusk or night time when the wasps are less active
  • Have access to the correct materials to deal with the removal
